Time Machine for Your Cloud Server – 1&1 Snapshot

November 14, 2012 by  

Web Hosting ServicesPhiladelphia, PA – 1&1 Internet, Inc.,, a global leader among Web hosting providers, has developed an additional security solution for its Dynamic Cloud Servers – 1&1 Snapshot. With this solution, 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server virtual machines can be restored by creating an image, or snapshot, of the current server configuration and database at any time. For example, if complications arise after installing new software, previously saved snapshots of configurations and databases can be restored.

No modern business can afford extended downtimes of their IT-infrastructure. Manual server reconfiguration, among other inconveniences, can result in several hours of downtime when systems could be inaccessible. Such disturbances can have a lasting effect on a business with unhappy customers or loss of earnings as possible consequences. 1&1 Snapshot offers the necessary security precaution for such situations. The tool allows users to create an image of the current configuration and database from the 1&1 Control Panel within a few clicks. The snapshot of original configuration and database remains available until it is overwritten by a new snapshot no matter how many changes are made to the server. This is especially useful for customers who need to regularly test new software. The server snapshot is permanently saved by 1&1 for an unlimited period of time, and only if the operator creates a new image, will the old one will be replaced.

Snapshot is available for new and existing 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server customers at no additional cost.
